The WinterCup Finals Bring Esports To The GrEEK Campus

Gamers Lounge is holding an Esports tournament of epic proportions with HearthStone, CS:GO, and DOTA 2!

Real sports are hard; running around, probably chasing balls, getting all sweaty and stuff - no thanks. Esports are where it’s at. You can become an expert ‘athlete’ without ever having to put pants on. That’s the kind of sport for us. You can also make some serious cash; that is, if you can beat all the other pants-less geeks. 

Here in Egypt, the opportunities to prove yourself a bonafide pro gamer are few and far between. So, Gamers Lounge is making dreams happen with its WinterCup Finals at the GrEEK Campus on Saturday! 

With a total prize pool of 12500 LE, you can finally rub it in your mom’s face for all those times she said playing videogames was a waste of time. Spectating is free, and there will be competitions throughout the day as well as digital and real life giveaways. 

Registration for HearthStone, the massively popular digital card game, starts at 10 AM and will end at 1 PM, or when 16 players summon the courage to sign up. First prize is 500 LE, with 300 LE going to the runner-up and 200 LE for 3rd place. 

Besides fake cards, you can watch the elite Cairene Counter Strike: GO players take each other out with fake guns, too. Team Anubis vs Simplicity Gaming for the CS:GO WinterCup is sure to be a match so tense people might snap their phones in half in excitement. 

The big deal, though, is the DOTA 2 tournament with matches between NoTerrorBlade and Bend Over for 1st and 2nd places, and Skinshizer and GX Gaming for 3rd and 4th.
